After returning from Russia I was often asked what it was "really like over there", whether the taxis were old or new, if there were omnibuses and hairdressers, whether there were fashion stores, photo studios, friendly policemen, beautiful women and all that, and I tried to answer all these questions to the best of my ability. But there was one question that was posed particularly insistently: What are the Russians like? Are they polite and friendly, charming or gruff, are they open-minded? After thinking about it for some time, I always only came up with one answer: that the human being is shaped by the surroundings in which he lives. And that is particularly true of Russia.
